USS Sentinel

The year is 2389 and the Federation is is turmoil.

It has only been a year since the destruction of Romulus in the Hobus hypernova. The Romulan Star Empire has rejected further Federation aid and resealed its borders, citing incursions by the Klingons and the Gorn into Romulan space as the reason. The Klingon Empire is resurgent. Smelling blood, they have launched several invasions into Romulan space, annexing several systems. The Romulans and the Klingons stand on the brink of war. A war the Klingons now believe they can win. Stuck in the middle of this brewing conflict is the Federation, fearing a shift in the balance of power and trying to maintain peace between two races who resent interference and distrust all.

In the Gamma Quadrant, the Dominion are disquietingly silent. Slowly contracting and releasing formerly occupied planets to independence. Nobody knows why, or what their motives are, but the Federation senses opportunity and sends several ships, including the USS Sentinel, on diplomatic missions into the Gamma Quadrant.

Welcome to the USS Sentinel, I am Captain James McCullen. The USS Sentinel is an Intrepid-class starship that is part of 22nd Fleet. The Sentinel's primary focus is exploration and science-based discovery, but with the current state of the galaxy, we may be called upon to carry out other duties for the Federation.

Current Mission - Shadows

After leaving the planet Stakoron II, the USS Sentinel receives a message from the Stakorons requesting further aid. A rare particle, Xirdalium, which powers the Stakoron’s environmental control systems, is running low. Until the separation, the Stakoron’s had no idea that the only reliable source of Xirdalium was the Dominion and had no idea that they were running out until the environmental control systems stopped working. Until the Federation can install dueterium compatible power supplies, the Stakoron need a new source. The USS Sentinel is tasked with going to a nebula near the edge of Dominion space where Xirdalium has been detected and returning a quantity of it to Stakoron II.

The shuttle bay doors parted, and Emilie D'Astous carefully eased Shuttlecraft 04 out into space. She was followed by three more shuttles, who would take a similar route. She circled around the ship and turned toward the asteroid. She scanned the asteroid for an entry, locating an access port that…

Ibraxol followed after McCullen and Rusan, silently hopeful that wherever they were going was a bit cooler than the outdoors.

In the Karandath asteroid belt, roughly five hundred million kilometers from Stakoron II, Shasath, senior kastuvas, or miner in the common language, frowned down at the readings displayed on the console in front of her.

Something, she knew, was wrong. The feel of the rock beneath her hands and feet,…
